Specs: Prolongs Life of lipo by charging at 1c instead of 3c rate
Material Required: Mixed

Notes: This is a very simple mod that can be done on the original AA Tx to achieve a true 1C charge for all the AA planes. (Except for the UBI, JS and the Air Acrobat/Rolling Fury Planes. They have their own 1C mods.)

Notes: Ssstraub has created an updated set of mod pictures for the Power Hawk's transmitter to select the channel you wish. All the transmitters made in 2007 and going forward have this style of circuit board, so the modification is different from the old mod. Thanks Sstraub for the great pictures!
